Hogan Lovells Hires Tope As Partner In Corporate Practice

Mar 20 2017 | 9:30pm ET

Law firm Hogan Lovells has hired former Greenberg Traurig attorney Adam Tope as a partner in the firm’s corporate practice. 

Tope will operate out of the firm’s New York office, according to a statement. He will represent the sponsors of private equity, real estate, venture capital and hedge funds across the full spectrum of fund formation matters, including co-investment vehicles, managed accounts and funds of one. 

Tope will also advise investors on fund investments, direct investments and co-investments, including secondary transactions, the firm added. 

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Tope was a shareholder at Greenberg Traurig. He earned his J.D., cum laude, from Georgetown University Law Center and his B.S. from Cornell University. 

“We are excited for Adam to join us,” said David Winter, co-head of the firm's global fund formation practice group, in the statement. “Adam’s talent and excellent relationships with private equity firms and institutional investors makes him a good addition to our New York office where he will be able to provide our clients with advice on all aspects of fund formation.

Headquartered in London and Washington, D.C., Hogan Lovells was formed in 2010 through the merger of D.C.-based Hogan and Hartson and London’s Lovells. The firm is a leading global legal practice providing business-oriented legal advice and high-quality service across its exceptional breadth of practices to clients around the world.
